We love the look of a warm, wooden dining table. It’s just so cozy and perfect for long dinners with friends and family. If you’re in the market for a dining table, you’re in luck, because there are so many talented woodworkers making beautiful handcrafted tables from salvaged or sustainable wood. Here are seven to be aware of:


  • 1 Rocky Mountain Table Co: If you happen to be in Denver, Colorado, you can visit Rocky Mountain Table’s showroom, but they also ship across the country! They source all their wood as close to home as possible, and you’ll find a number of tables paired with raw, recycable steel bases. Table shown: Rustic Industrial Dining Table with Steel Legs, $1,499

  • 2 Reclaimed PA: Jen and Jeff Lavallee are the owners and makers behind Reclaimed PA. Their dining tables are often made out of reclaimed pine or white oak. You may even find one with vintage hairpin legs! Table shown: Reclaimed Wood Dining Table in Fitler Square, $975

  • 3 LM Furniture: This family-run business out of Atlanta, Georgia is headed up by master craftsman and former engineer Noah Lawton, who worked on yachts and private jets before turning to furniture. You’ll find classic table designs in their shop, all made with water-based finishes, enforced joinery, and solid wood that is either reclaimed, salvaged or from a sustainable forestry program. Table shown: French Farmhouse Dining Table, $625

  • 4 Kage Design Studio: Kevin and Tristen Glaab are the husband-and-wife team behind Kage Design Studio, based in Southern California. Although they have a smaller selection, the dining tables are really unique, with tops made from a mixture of different reclaimed wood species.

  • 5 Dendro Co: Based out of Chicago, Dendro Co is soon-to-be-married Serge Podrez and Tara Powell, who both have a passion for making reclaimed wood furniture. They work with local business contractors all over the Midwest to carefully salvage the wood from buildings in disrepair, which they then make into custom handmade furniture.
